Fulton Ho­gan tri­alling bio­fu­els

Element - - Enterprise -

Fulton Ho­gan – the civil con­tract­ing com­pany with 4000 em­ploy­ees in New Zealand – is to trial biodiesel in its Christchurch ve­hi­cle fleet. Work­ing with Biodiesel New Zealand, the com­pany will use biodiesel in a small num­ber of ve­hi­cles, with plans to ex­pand use across the rest of the com­pany. “It will be great to see re­new­able fu­els be­ing used in the re-con­struc­tion of Christchurch. This move will not only ben­e­fit the com­pany it­self, but in­spire oth­ers to fol­low suit,” said En­ergy Ef­fi­ciency and Con­ser­va­tion Au­thor­ity (EECA) chief ex­ec­u­tive Mike Un­der­hill. EECA has sup­ported Fulton Ho­gan with a grant to as­sist the in­stal­la­tion of a spe­cially-de­vel­oped fuel blend­ing pump, which will en­able the com­pany to use dif­fer­ent pro­por­tions of biodiesel blends, de­pend­ing on the ve­hi­cle be­ing filled.
